South Cornwall and the Roseland - Du Maurier, Rosamunde Pilcher, Poldark and more


We will start in Fowey, the home of Daphne Du Maurier and setting for many of her works, and explore the many other literary connections. We will also spend time in Charlestown, location for the filming of Poldark and many other films and TV shows and a gorgeous 18th century port in it's own right. The tour continues along the South Coast via the Roseland Pensinsula, often said to be the prettiest part of Cornwall, to Falmouth, home to Pendennis Castle and many tales of seafarers and pirates. Along the way we will explore several locations with literary or film links, including romantic country houses, castles and breathtaking coastal views. We will visit the church at St Just in Roseland, described by John Betjeman as "to many people, the most beautiful churchyard on earth" and there will be the opportunity to have lunch at a working 16th century watermill hidden in a delightful wooded valley.
As with all my tours, this one can be adapted to suit your requirements.

Itinerary

9. 00 (can be altered to suit) - pick up from accommodation or nominated place, travel to Fowey to explore the sights and the literary and film connections. Next is Charlestown, setting for many TV and film shoots including Poldark & Pirates of the Caribbean. We will have the opportunity to explore and also stop for refreshments. Afterwards we head to Mevagissey, a beautiful fishing port and again the location for several film shoots. We then continue onto the Roseland Peninsula, via Caerhays Castle and the picturesque village of Veryan. Next up is the church at St just in Roseland, followed by St Mawes and it's castle dating back to the time of Henry VIII. Finally, we cross the river Fal on the King Harry ferry, near to where many American troops embarked for D Day, and on to the Port of Falmouth. I will then return you to your start point.
